LafargeHolcim Proud to Support the Abbotsford 2016 BC Summer Games

The BC Summer Games are British Columbia’s biennial celebration of sport and community.  Since 1978, the BC Games have taken place in 38 communities and involved over 350,000 participants and volunteers and thousands more as spectators and supporters. The purpose of the BC Games is “To provide an opportunity for the development of athletes, coaches, and officials in preparation for higher levels of competition in a multi-sport event which promotes interest and participation in sport and sporting activities, individual achievement and community development.”

Back in April, 2016 our LafargeHolcim GVA Aggregates division was approached by Janet Barrie, Director of the Abbotsford 2016 BC Summer Games. Janet Barrie and Guy Martin, Manager of Horticulture & Turf at the City of Abbotsford were looking for help with materials for their Volleyball Courts. LafargeHolcim was proud to support these Games and donate 800 tonnes of our Volleyball Sand to help put the finishing touches on the Volleyball Courts. LafargeHolcim was recognized as a Platinum Sponsor at this event and were very proud to support these games and the community of Abbotsford.

Lafarge Volunteers Install Fencing for the Upcoming Toadlet Migration

On Wednesday June 15th Lafarge volunteers once again made their way out to Chilliwack to volunteer with the Fraser Valley Conservancy. Just as they did last year, Lafarge GVA employees aided in the installation of temporary directional fencing for the upcoming toadlet migration. The toadlets will now be able to travel safely from woodlands to wetlands thanks to the directional fencing and the amphibian tunnel crossing that was generously provided by Lafarge last year.
